Radio leaders. (Outtakes).

The fall 2001 ratings survey by the Arbitron Co. has hit the streets, showing that the ratings picture among Little Rock-area radio stations has remained largely unchanged.

Among metro listeners 12 and older, the top four radio stations during the summer stayed atop the heap in the fall. Reigning country king KSSN-FM, 95.7 (KSSN 96), was No. 1, losing only one-tenth a share point to record a 10.7. Urban contemporary powerhouse KIPR (Power 92), was No. 2 with a 7.4.

KARN, which broadcasts on an AM and FM signal, remained the top news/talk station in the market and was No. 3 overall with a combined 6.5. Classic rocker KMJX-FM, 105.1 (Magic 105), remained No. 4, having dropped three-tenths of a share point to land at 6.3.

But KLEC-FM, 106.3 (Lick), continues to move up among radio stations, even while its share points declined since the summer. The alternative format station, owned by Equity Broadcasting Corp. of Little Rock, was No. 5 in the market, sneaking past KKPT-FM, 94.1 (The Point), which kept it out of the top five in the summer.

Meanwhile, Clear Channel Broadcasting of San Antonio (KSSN, Magic and KOLL-FM, 95) and Citadel (Power, KARN and KURB) each have three stations in the top 10. Signal Media of Little Rock has two (The Point and KABZ-FM, 103.7).
